Also, it was a mistake on my part to define a separate field class for
Org tags, vs "regular" non-Org tags. It's enough just to have the
ebdb-org.el define new functions for dealing with the regular tag field
class, there's no need to have a separate class.

In the next week I'm going to add a backwards-compatibility hack so that
creating a new ebdb-org-field-tags instance actually returns an instance
of ebdb-field-tags. Just FYI -- you might as well just use a regular
ebdb-field-tags field, it will get Org integration soon.
